Assisted Living Reviews for The Windsor at Ortega

October 22, 2017

By Tammy/Marc

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Our parents/in-laws moved to Windsor at Ortega earlier this year. We were so impressed with the facility - its decor, the 'restaurant' where fabulous chef-cooked meals are ordered, the activities, gathering places for residents as well as for family events, planned outings, and staff. Mom was very resistant to give up her home, but we wanted them close by and chose a large spacious apartment - their own furnishings, their own decor! The convenient access is also wonderful - prime location, yet quiet, intimate, landscaped beautifully, and always colorfully decorated for the season! Unfortunately, our dad passed away not long afterwards, and Windsor was an extra blessing for all of us, helping to transition our mom from caregiver to integration into their activities. Having so many services and activities onsite as well as offsite events for her gives her the independence of living along, with access to other residents and opportunities. We love having meals with her there, as well as close-by access to her coming to visit us! We love being greeted by everyone - front desk, care-givers, housekeeping - I have never seen a place where everyone is so friendly, helpful, just genuinely cares about our mom as well as our family! I know many reviews focused on the cost... we analyzed and worried over the same. But when we totaled the cost of maintaining their home, utilities, food costs, cleaning services, in-home medical care and daily attendant care to ensure they were eating, taking meds, etc.etc... when you factor all of those costs plus our time off from work to address 'emergencies' etc (not that we ever minded), the cost was very close. Windsor at Ortega gives us piece of mind- no value can be placed on that- piece of mind that she is safe and being well taken care of.

Provider Response

We are honored you chose The Windsor at Ortega for your parents, and even more gratified that we could help your family through a difficult time when your father passed.

My mother has been a resident at the Windsor at Ortega Memory Care Unit for approximately three years. When visiting the Windsor in the beginning it was the staff and interior decorating that sold me. Everything wasn't white and it didn't look like a hospital. Since that time I have been impressed with the outings and entertainment they provide residents. I have also developed a friendship with several of the staff that have went up and above to help me handle issues with my mom. They are not the cheapest in the market but my philosophy is you get what you pay for. I say thank you to Veronica and Naomi!

Provider Response

Our talented associates work hard to make The Windsor feel like home and our relationships with residents and their families are crucial to providing the best care. We know Veronica and Naomi will appreciate the compliments!

My father is a founding resident at The Windsor of Ortega! He had previously been residing at another community close by on Roosevelt! When we started having issues with the price increase, I reached out to the regional director who basically wouldn't do anything! So, that's when our family decided to look at The Windsor of Ortega! It is beautiful and now what our dad calls home! While you will never find anyplace that is perfect, our family is so thankful to have our dad in such a wonderful place! You could not find a nicer director anywhere , and she always has an open door to talk to you! The nursing director is awesome and is always available! The office staff can't be beat ! The chef is always trying to please the residents by cooking their favorite meals! Most of all, our family does not worry about our dad's safety and well being! We know he is in good hands and feels comfortable being there! Our family and Dad ♥️The Windsor of Ortega!

I visited this facility

The Windsor at Ortega is amazing; it is almost like a 5-star hotel. They had bands playing at night, and they had a whole bunch of different programs that they can do in there. They bake cookies, they had popcorn, and they watch movies. The place is like a 5-star resort. The staff was extremely helpful and nice, and they also did a follow-up just asking me how the visit was and if we have decided to go there and since we did not, how come we did not. I told them that we’d love to, but it was $1,000 more a month than the other ones, and they did not accept Medicaid.

I visited this facility

The visit to Windsor went fine, and there were no problems. The facility seemed well taken care of, and the staff was pleasant, but we were just not ready to make a decision. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. It seemed like a pleasant place, and location wise, it was closer.

I visited this facility

The Windsor at Ortega was very nice. It was a new facility, and I did like the security level. I liked the activities that they did show me. The rooms were kind of small, but it was adequate and very clean too. I liked the approach when I first visited. They did do follow-up, they did talk with me, and also tried to assist me in trying to find different places where we could get funding or some other assistance in trying to find one that I can just talk to and try to get financial help.

My mom has found a place in The Windsor at Ortega. We like it because it's nice, clean, and like a high-end hotel. Everything and everyone is very nice. The staff is very polite and helpful. The rooms are nice, of adequate size, and clean. They clean up the rooms and do laundry, too. The food is good, though my mom doesn't care for it sometimes, but sometimes she really enjoys it also.

I visited this facility

It was a nice facility, but it had too much of an effect of a high-class hotel. It just didn't have the homey feel. The staff seemed attentive and personable. I didn't try their food, but I did observe them having a meal. The dining area didn't seem real personable or warm. It had isolated little groups. I was only there for about 45 minutes. I met with one of the counselors, and we just kind of walked through. I really didn't care for the facility. There really wasn't a whole lot I liked about The Windsor at Ortega.

The Windsor was top marks. It was probably the most expensive of the three we looked at. It’s a new facility, very clean. The food was very good; the staff was good. The dining area was very nice; it was more like a restaurant than a cafeteria.

Everything is going really well so far, and there are no problems at all at The Windsor. We got both of my parents in a two-room apartment about 720 square feet, and they have a little of everything. They got a movie theater on the lot, and they got all kind of things like cooking classes and walking classes. They have TV and an area where they can have the family in a room all by themselves. They have 24 hour nurse care. My parents have a small dog, and they pay a little extra a month for people to walk them. As a matter of fact, I found out yesterday a lot of the girls fight over walking the dog because they enjoy it so much. They are very good, and it is a clean place that just opened in June. It is really clean, really conscientious, and really friendly. Any problems they have, they take care of it right away. They'll give me a call to check in with me.

The Windsor was excellent. Everything about it was wonderful. It was perfectly clean. The staff and the director were wonderful. They had standard apartments. They had movies, and they had restaurants.

My father is in Windsor and the staff is very helpful, accommodating, very good and friendly. They had a variety of sizes for their rooms and a nice variety of meals. The dining room is clean and spacious. They had blocked entrances and a sign in process. There is a wide variety of activities; cards, movies, cooking, bingo, and puzzles. I would recommend it, and we really liked what we saw.

We were referred to Windsor at Ortega. The staff is very lovely and very helpful. They have lovely rooms; they were brand new and spacious. The dining room is beautiful, and the food is OK with limited choices, like a café. They could improve on the food. They have very strong security. They have a calendar of activities.

I visited this facility

The Windsor is very new. It's 6 months old. It's very clean, and the staff seemed to be very good. It definitely would have been my choice if they had a higher skilled nursing facility. That was the only drawback for me. They didn't have full skilled nursing

Windsor at Ortega was gorgeous. It was a light, bright, and brand new, beautiful place. And, they had lots of activities and lots of things. I have a friend that lives there, and when I went there with my mom they had something like a Mardi Gras thing going on and it was very nice. This place was like over-the-top gorgeous. They had a movie theater room and lots of parking too. The food was excellent. They had real plates, real silver, and not the plastic stuff. My mom thought it was too fancy.

We choose The Windsor at Ortega for my brother-in-law because it seems to be the best fit for him. The staff is excellent. They have a lot of activities planned and they are very caring. The room is beautiful. It's brand new and big enough. The food is excellent and the dining room is beautiful. They have activities like bingo and different games. They have Luau and parties. It's just very nice and I just like everything about it. I would absolutely recommend it to others.

I visited this facility

The Windsor at Ortega is brand new. I'm very impressed with that facility; except that they just had a small refrigerator and a microwave, and my mother wanted a full kitchen. The first thing I like is that every so often between the apartments, they create a large sitting area with tables and chairs, so people don't have to walk any long distance if they want to mingle, which I think is great. They have an extremely large movie theater, and a huge, huge flat screen TV, and they have it equipped for the hearing impaired, too. They have a cooking area in which they hold cooking classes. It's not very large; I think they have about ninety rooms, so it's a bit personal. And then, they have another area, which you won't even know is there. It's a secured area for the people that end up with Alzheimer's or dementia; that they're able to monitor them closer. That would have been the perfect place for my mother. The dining area is very, very nice, and they have tables of different sizes. They provide three meals a day, and two are fitted into the price.

Windsor was nice, but I don't think they offer enough. The facilities need an upgrade, and I wasn't impressed with the dining room. Nevertheless, it was better than the other facility I saw. Also, it was in a nice neighborhood.

I visited this facility

We saw the Windsor, and they were brand new. Everything was excellent. We went there during the building stage, and it was like going into a construction site, but the girl was very nice and helpful. Everyone connected with Windsor was very helpful and friendly. They weren't at the stage where they had laid the floor and had placed the furniture yet, but we did see all of the rooms and the facilities that would be there, and we were impressed with the fact that the laundry machines were on every floor. That was really an extra. We did see a room with a carpet, so we had a good feel of how our furniture would fit. They also had several units that seemed very satisfactory, and for what we were thinking of nursing home rooms, they were very spacious, and we liked that. I liked the security of the place. It was very nice and had everything we were looking for, but it was ultimately too expensive. Since then, they have been calling regularly to see if we have made a further decision.
